Prevention is Always the Best Cure

One of the easiest ways to illustrate the value of preventive medicine is to look at a baby aspirin. An adult male can take one baby aspirin daily – at a cost of about two cents – to help protect against and prevent a heart attack, or risk an actual heart attack, hospitalization and treatment costing tens of thousands of dollars. Preventive healthcare costs far less, both in monetary terms and human suffering terms.

That’s why Dr. Neal D. Johnson and his caring medical team of physician assistants and nutritionist offer so much focus on preventive healthcare in Austin, TX. It is the responsible way to practice medicine. His services include
